Autumnal Blessings – Serpent Wisdom and Transformation – Ryan Couples Therapy Tacoma, WA

Autumn: Sacred Mystery, Serpent Wisdom, and Transformation

Autumn Blessings! Autumn is a time to return, remember, reclaim and rewild.

The Thread of Life: Remembering my Ancestors’ Ways of Creating the Tapestry

These spring mornings, when I rise and cup my coffee in my barely awake hands, my eyes focus on the sun-lit tree tops outside my window. Small patches of sunlight, filtering in and landing on the highest branches of the trees with such subtlety one can easily miss this. So much more dominant, and easily […]

Winter Solstice: The Gift of Stillness

Winter solstice offers us the gift of stillness. Solstice literally means “sun stands still.” So as the winter solstice approaches, we too are invited to come into stillness. This season invites us to honor the art of stillness, to cultivate patience, to trust the waiting period ripe with potential, yet to be revealed. To trust […]

It means […]

Whispers of the Sacred Feminine as the World Burns – Ryan Couples Therapy

Whispers of the Sacred Feminine as the World Burns

The Sacred Feminine is whispering to us even as the world burns. The west coast of the U.S.A., where I live, is literally engulfed in wildfire flames. I feel the oppressiveness of the smoke. And it is with fatigue, sadness, anger, grief, and a sense of desolation that I feel like I am burning too. […]

Remembering the Body’s Wisdom

Remembering our body’s inherent wisdom is a practice that will help us heal from the destructiveness of the diet industry, diet culture, and the tenets of white supremacy and patriarchal standards of beauty. Ancient cultures knew how to listen to and revere the messages of one’s body. They used the earth’s food (pure, natural, whole […]

Yoni Love: Ancient Feminine Wisdom

Yoni love is a path to connect to our ancient feminine wisdom. I love being in deep conversation with other women about yoni love, sexuality, sensuality, pleasure, desire; about how all of these things are inter-connected to our divine feminine wisdom, to our ancestral wisdom, and to the heartbeat of the life force held deep […]
